Dental disease is more than just an inconvenience for your pet; it can be painful and impact their overall health. Without proper care, dental issues can progress, eroding the supporting tissue in your pet's mouth and spreading harmful bacteria throughout their bloodstream. This not only affects their quality of life but can also shorten their lifespan. Our pet dentistry services go beyond routine cleaning procedures; we prioritize your pet's comfort and longevity. All of the doctors on our team have extensive training and experience with diagnosing dental disease and are very comfortable performing extractions and other specialized treatments.

Signs Your Pet Needs Dental Care

It’s crucial to recognize when your pet may require dental attention. Look out for these signs that may indicate dental issues:

Bad Breath (Halitosis): Unpleasant breath can be a sign of dental problems, including decay or infection.

Changes in Eating Habits: Difficulty eating, reluctance to chew, or a sudden change in appetite could signal dental discomfort.

Excessive Drooling: Increased drooling may be indicative of oral pain or discomfort.

Red or Swollen Gums: Inflammation of the gums can be a sign of gingivitis or more advanced dental issues.

Visible Tartar or Discoloration: Yellow or brown deposits on your pet’s teeth may indicate the presence of tartar and the need for a professional cleaning.

If you notice any of these symptoms, it’s time to consider professional pet dentistry services.
